The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Actress

I got the idea for this shortly after all the articles went up. (You can find the articles here.) I was thinking — “What would it be like if circumstances didn’t matter? If I just voted based solely on the category and what was nominated?” Naturally that led to, “Well that can become a nice series of articles.” So that’s what they’re becoming.

I’m calling it my Abridged Oscar Quest. I’m going to go through every year of every category, and simply pick winners based solely on the category. I will not take into account what won before, what is the “classy choice,” what never had a shot. Just — here are the nominees, here’s what I would vote for if I had a ballot. I’m taking into account nothing but the films.

I’m going to star (*) the film I’d vote for.

Today is Best Actress: (more…)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Darlin’, oh my darlin’ / In that prison cell I’d be / Thinking of the day that I’d get out / And hold you close to me. / But what it is I always see? / One rock / Two rocks / Three rocks / Four rocks / Rock pile dust is on my shoes / I’m the guy just born to lose / When I hear the siren blow / Oooh-ooooh!!! / I get those blues.” ♫
